Fantasy Football: Projecting the Los Angeles Rams’ backfield in 2020

After having Todd Gurley as their workhorse running back from 2015-2019, the Los Angeles Rams will no longer rely on No. 30 in the backfield. Due to the long-term concerns of his knee and his hefty price tag, the Rams released Gurley earlier this offseason. With Gurley out of the mix, what is the outlook of Los Angeles’ backfield in fantasy football this season?

Shortly after parting ways with Gurley, the Rams didn’t wait long to replace him. Despite not having a first-round pick for the fourth-straight year under Sean McVay, Los Angeles took Cam Akers with the No. 52 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

While Akers expects to have an immediate role, he’ll have to fend off second-year running back, Darrell Henderson. Similar to Akers, the Rams thought highly of Henderson, trading up to select him in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Besides Akers and Henderson, Malcolm Brown is the de facto veteran presence in Los Angeles’ backfield heading into the upcoming season. Taking all of that into account, let’s take a look at the projections for the Rams’ running backs in fantasy football in 2020.
